"Wow! Such amazing detials!"

I knew as soon as I saw this treasure I had to buy it! -- Painted with the wisdom of turtles (just one symbolism for turtles). Now they also have available a blue bull with fish! So tempting! The painting details and carving of the bull are just incredible. Perfection! I am always in awe when I receive these pieces from Zeny and Reyna. So happy to see that more of their artworks are available here on Novica.

"Excellent Quality & Fair Price"

The piece I received was modestly different than the picture on the Novica. This is to be expected since each piece is cfrafted individually. Fine workmanship. I would definitely buy from these artists again.
